TransGlobe Energy Corporation Announces Well Results on Block S-1, Yemen and Operations Update

TransGlobe Energy Corporation Announces Well Results on Block S-1, Yemen and Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- TransGlobe Energy Corporation ("TransGlobe" or the "Company") (TSX: TGL) (AMEX: TGA) is pleased to announce a new Lam A oil producer at An Nagyah #24 and an operations update.

Block S-1, Republic of Yemen (25% working interest)

An Nagyah #24, which commenced drilling February 25 2007, reached a total measured depth of 2,050 meters and was completed as a producing oil well after flowing at an initial rate of 2,252 barrels of light (43 degree API) oil per day and 0.6 million cubic feet of gas per day at a flowing pressure of 400 psi on a 48/64 inch choke. The An Nagyah #24 well was drilled 791 meters horizontally in the Lam A sandstone reservoir. The well will be placed on production through a pipeline connected to the An Nagyah facilities.

The drilling rig is currently drilling An Nagyah #25 as a Lam A vertical gas injection well on the western side of the main An Nagyah pool.

The An Nagyah #25 gas injector is an integral part of the project to inject natural gas from the An Naeem pool into the western portion of the An Nagyah Lam A pool. The planned gas injection will provide additional pressure support in the western portion of the field to improve production performance and increase recoverable reserves. Gas injection is expected to commence during the second half of 2007, after the 25 kilometer pipeline from An Naeem to the An Nagyah central production facility ("CPF") is completed. The completion of the first phase of the An Nagyah CPF in May will allow increased production from An Nagyah as well as recovery of condensate from the injected gas. Condensate is blended with the produced oil and will increase oil sales.

Block 32, Republic of Yemen (13.81% working interest)

The Block 32 joint venture group has secured an additional drilling rig for a three well program which will be assigned to development drilling on the Godah field. It is expected drilling will commence at Godah #5 in mid April and follow on with Godah #6 and #7. Successful wells can be brought on to production immediately, utilizing the Godah facility and recently completed pipeline to the Tasour CPF.

Nuqra Block, Egypt (50 % working interest)

The Narmer #1 exploration well commenced drilling on March 24. This well is targeting an unrisked gross 10 million barrel Jurassic prospect at approximately 2,400 meters. Drilling costs before completion work are estimated at $3.3 million (gross). Contingent upon the results of Narmer #1, a third well at West Narmer #1 is planned.
